Cornerstone OnDemand Named a
Leader in IDC Marketplace: Worldwide
Integrated Talent Management
Report for Sixth Consecutive Year

SANTA MONICA, Calif. — June 29, 2016 — For the sixth year in a row, Cornerstone OnDemand (NASDAQ:CSOD), has been recognized as a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Integrated Talent Management 2016 report,1 the company announced today.

“Cornerstone rated well with clients across all dimensions, including functional strength and customer service,” Lisa Rowan, program director of HR, learning and talent strategies for IDC, states in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Integrated Talent Management report.

Observing that across the vendor landscape “2016 seems to be the year of analytics with some predictive capabilities already available and more on the horizon,” the report highlights Cornerstone’s efforts to develop innovative analytics capabilities. Rowan comments in the report that “Cornerstone has delivered a strong analytics (product)” with Cornerstone Insights, the company’s predictive and prescriptive analytics solution that equips business leaders with the intelligence to better recruit, train, manage and develop their people.

The report also calls out other areas of innovation such as Cornerstone Edge, the company’s platform for integrating with and extending the Cornerstone product suite, and Cornerstone Link. “To combat the challenge of competing against vendors that offer talent (management) with core HR, Cornerstone announced Link, (which) bridges the gap between talent and HR recordkeeping and may prove to eliminate some need for a core HR system of record,” notes Rowan in the report.

Additional IDC MarketScape reports on individual areas of talent management also recognize Cornerstone as a worldwide “Leader” in Learning Management,2 Performance Management3 and Compensation Management,4 as well as a “Major Player” in Recruiting.5

“We are pleased to be acknowledged once again as a talent management Leader in the IDC MarketScape,” said Adam Miller, founder and CEO of Cornerstone OnDemand. “Talent management technologies are evolving from an emphasis on process automation and integrated talent management to a focus on data-driven decision making. We’re excited to be at the forefront of people analytics, removing barriers for organizations so that they can take the power of Big Data from insights to action and make more strategic and informed talent decisions.”

“At ResCare, our clients and customers depend on us and our advanced technology systems to help them reach their highest level of independence,” said Cornerstone client Tom Heetderks, vice president of human resources at ResCare, the nation’s largest private provider of services to people with disabilities, the largest one-stop workforce contractor and the largest privately-owned home care company. “Cornerstone offers us more than just the most innovative technology in the talent management industry.
